Manufacturing with expertise
We take several factors into account when manufacturing our technical fabric solutions. It is important to us that our customers receive products and product solutions from us that are durable. In addition, they need to be individual and versatile so that they stand up to our customers’ requirements. And that is exactly what our customers can rely on. We select the right and appropriate manufacturing process for the respective application.
High-quality fabric is made from the right material and with the right weave.
We work with durable materials such as metal or polymers and with sophisticated substances such as basalt, glass, or ceramics. In accordance with the individual wishes of our customers, we produce high-quality and durable industrial meshes, filters, filter elements, or mesh laminates – either in series production or as one-offs. Compound products are just as possible as high-precision mesh made of a single material.
When selecting the right type of weave, our customers can rely on our almost 100 years of experience. The production of mixed constructions, multi-dimensional weave structures, multi-layer constructions, weaves made of special alloys, and production under clean room conditions for special requirements are standard for us.
With our specially developed machines, we make customer wishes possible.
In order to be able to create individual solutions for our customers in niche markets, we at GKD design and manufacture our own machines together with our partners. In contrast to standard machines, these allow us to produce versatile and high-quality meshes that are precisely tailored to the needs of our customers.
Thanks to our special machinery, we can produce just-in-time and process all common materials as well as ultra-fine wires from 16 μM. Ultra-fine meshes up to a width of two meters and a weaving width of up to six meters for other meshes are also possible.
After weaving, 90% of all GKD industrial meshes undergo finishing operations or subsequent processing.
After production, the industrial fabrics are cleaned. We use thermal processes and coatings to permanently ensure the desired material properties and the mesh bond. Finally, we cut and join each product individually. The result of all this is a reliable, durable, and economical product for industry. We process these further into individual solutions or hand them over to our customers as semi-finished products.
A selection of our processing and finishing methods:
- Annealing with the shielding gas process
- Marking seams
- Laser cutting
- Solution annealing
- Plasma cutting
- Mechanical cutting/stamping
